South Sea Tales, Robert Louis Stevenson

I'm not a fan of Stevenson or Island Fiction in general. It's just not my thing. But I came across this quote while reading South Sea Tales for class and it made me laugh:

'He had the courage of a lion and the cunning of a rat; 
and if he's not in hell today, there's no such place.' 

Heh. I know some people like that...

South Sea Tales is one of those books that will go on a shelf and never be read again. I don't like the style, I don't like the voice, I don't like the topic... and I've still got Treasure Island to read. (Oh, boy.)
